The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Fulton County Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA), Inc. is a volunteer program committed to making the juvenile justice system and the community more responsive to the needs of abused and neglected children. The program provides trained, supervised volunteers to speak for the best interests of children involved in deprivation proceedings in Fulton County. Training is 40 hours and offered several times a year.
Volunteers visit their assigned child at least once a month to gather information to facilitate the provision of appropriate resources for the child and to monitor the child's placement and overall situation. Volunteers also use this information in advocating for the best interest of the child in court by preparing a court report and appearing in court.
